299 for the greatest system ever? WOW! What an absolute steal. I felt the ps3 was the greatest investment I've ever made when I bought it for 500. If you guys are passing it up for 299, you simply are an idiot. Especially if you are passing it up for a 360. That system blows chunks of feces and dog urine.

$299 for the best Blu-Ray player on the market, a complete high-definition media center, and a system with great exclusives isn't too shabby, I'd say. Love the hyperbole and you and your mini-me bring to the thread, just try not to get too carried away with it.

I bought my original PS3 at Walmart for $499 and it came with 10 free Blu-ray movies. I got all 4 Die Hards, Pirates 1 & 2, Cars, National Treasure 2, Oceans 13, and Batman Begins.
I have had 2 to 3 years of daily enjoyment. If I had to buy it again I would with no regrets.

This weekend I copped 2 SLIMS primarily for the blu-ray player. I put one in my guest B/R and the other in my L/R and use my original in my theater room where I play games to.
I figured since the SLIMS wont get much game usage I'll have 2 back ups if my original unit goes down.....lol.

PS3 slim has yet to be "officialy" merchandised here in the Philippines, yet before Sony spoiled the beans we already have a slim PS3 slim in the black market, i'm thinking about buying it or not

I liked the TMNT demo.

Thinking of buying it now.

Is this the same one that was in the arcades back in the day?

i might get it just for the nostalgia.. i remember playing this back in arcades when i was a kid, and no matter how many quarters you had, you could never get to the end

i actually know a place that still has this game

Has anyone done the Gamestop trade in deal? Trade in your old PS3 for a slim and get $150 off? Just wondering if there is certain specifications you have to meet. I tried calling Gamestop today but were closed by the time I called. :(

That's what I read on a few sites. Not sure if they're still doing the deal though.

EDIT: Just did the deal with my PS3. Brought in my PS3 with controller, component cable, USB cable, and power plug for $150. So only had to pay $150 for my slim. =)
